Concept Statement:

DEVICE is currently an outdated print newsletter written and published by Western’s design department. The department has proposed creating an online edition of the newsletter that can be updated more frequently. My concept for the new site involves meshing the articles and alumni updates published in DEVICE with select information and gallery pieces included on the main Western design web site. Some of the pages, such as Faculty, Students and Contact Us will remain relatively permanent, while the articles, events and alumni updates will change regularly. In terms of site design, I’ve observed that some of the most successful online design magazines keep their layout and color schemes classy, but relatively neutral to allow the work they’re showcasing to stand out. I plan to follow this same trend, while adding my own design style.
